As multiple worries, anxieties, and to-do's weighed down on my motivation, I got my answer: Wisdom is the key! Worry and Stress doesn't belong to me. Emotions like these are tools of the devil. When the worry that usually loomed around my thoughts showed up this morning I got one command, and it held a power that was too good not to tweet:
If worry is trying to consume you, tell it to go back to hell!

As more revelation came so did a blog title. Wisdom is so powerful and so worthy nothing can touch it. When we put down worry and pick up wisdom, we reap the benefits:
Wisdom holds Life and Honor...Literally
Long life is in her right hand; in her left hand are riches and honor. (Proverbs 3:16) Wisdom makes life easier by helping us to stress less and providing enlightenment. Less stress equals longer life, medical reports will gladly back that up. Wisdom also holds wealth and honor, in modern terms that's fortune and fame.Not the fame that causes you to be exploited and ridiculed, but the one that causes favor and admiration. Worry has no results, but negative ones. *"Can any one of you by worrying add a single hour to your life?" -NO! wisdom on the other hand, holds Long life and Honor.
You Better Ask "Solomon"
Solomon chose wisdom over everything. 2 Chronicles 1:7-12 Because the King chose wisdom, God blessed him abundantly with wisdom and everything else he didn't ask for including riches, wealth, and honor. Wisdom rejoices in truth, it is the empowerment serum for the soul. It made Solomon's reign better and If you read properly above,as a bonus he received the things that wisdom itself possesses. Wisdom is more valuable than anything you're clamoring to possess.
She Can Upgrade You
Because wisdom rejoices in truth, it helps eliminate unnecessary drama. The word says put wisdom first and you'll be promoted. A wise person is a blessed person. Wisdom is the key to fulfillment on so many levels. Wisdom can upgrade us better than anyone can claim or sing. Scripture says wisdom, Preserves us, keeps us, promotes us, honors us, gives us grace, and delivers a crown of glory and that's only the half...of a scripture. We can do more with wisdom than we can ever do without it.
The snickers bar isn't what you're hungry for. We can search for validation and try to fill our emptiness with temporary fixes all we want, but it will never be enough. Even the best bread can't compare to wisdom: "Why spend money on what is not food, and your labor on what does not satisfy? Listen, listen to me, and eat what is good, and you will delight in the richest of fare." Wisdom is sweeter than the honey on a honeycomb. *"I have not departed from your laws,for you yourself have taught me.How sweet are your words to my taste, sweeter than honey to my mouth! I gain understanding from your precepts;therefore I hate every wrong path." Hungry? why wait! Start digging into your word!
Jesus said it Best
There's a difference between wisdom and standard knowledge. Wisdom is more enriching. in Matthew 6, Jesus instructed seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness and all these things will be added unto you.Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own. The kingdom of God is filled with wisdom, and wisdom is filled with everything essential. Worrying about absolutely anything is useless. Wisdom is the antithesis of worry, and it's the actual cure. In the end, It doesn't matter if I have it "All Together" or even if everything looks right, with wisdom on my side I cant go wrong!
There's no need to worry when you walk in purpose, the word says God will supply your needs according to His riches in Glory by Christ Jesus. Follow your purpose passionately and leave the rest to God.
